We create spaces for LGBT+ people of faith to come together, and support organisations through training and workshops to ensure their services are inclusive.
We also work to educate our community partners on the diverse experiences and needs of LGBT+ people of faith, and how we can all be better allies through the work we do.
“The Faith & Belief Forum provide a much-needed alternative – inclusive and reflective spaces for people to express their identities”
The Faith & Belief Forum’s LGBT+ Interfaith Network is a space for LGBT+ people from different faiths, beliefs and backgrounds, to come together in a friendly environment. We use interfaith activities and methods to explore personal stories of faith and belief, learn from each other’s traditions, and build solidarity and community. We work in collaboration with a range of brilliant single faith and regional LGBT+ organisations. We currently run occasional events, and are seeking funding for more regular events.
